The Cupertino giant opens its first retail store in the borough of Queens in New York this Sunday at 10 AM.

Last month, Apple renovated an old bank and opened a new retail store in the building in Upper East Side and now they continue their expansion in New York City by adding the Elmhurst neighborhood of Queens to the list. This new Apple retail store is located in the Queens Center mall to take advantage of the heavy foot traffic in the area. 

According to Apple Retail market director Jason Barlia, this is the company's eighth store in New York City. Regarding the place chosen, he said "When we saw this location it made a lot of sense." He also added that this store will have over 130 staff members able to speak 24 languages apart from English and about two-thirds of them are also fully bilingual.

While the store is simply a standard mall outlet, it will also be one of the largest in a mall in NYC. Its services and programs are the same as those offered by other Apple stores, including full support at the genius bar and over 140 Apple devices on display

The first 1,000 customers to enter the store will get a free black Apple T-shirt with the company's notorious logo and the store's location.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
